Experience Life Magazine Article, Featuring Lily Mazzarella

March 01, 2020

experience life magazineCurious about how herbs could help you with your stress?  Lily was interviewed for this excellent article in Experience Life Magazine about herbs and stress. Learn which herbs can help you with specific stress states, acute anxiety, sleeplessness and more. 

Lately, there have been a lot of triggers turning our stress hormones 'on'... most of us are hearing reports of the coronavirus, thinking about the primary elections, paying taxes, parenting, working, and trying to be “prepared” for a situation that we know little about. 

This is taxing on the nervous system, which is impactful for the immune system. Initially, stress can upregulate our immune function, increasing the number and activity of scavenging cells, and decreasing inflammation. In chronic stress states (in which many of us find ourselves), our inflammation levels can skyrocket while our ability to heal tissue and fight infection decreases dramatically.

But, of course, herbs can help. The article mentions types of anxiety and the best herbs to match those. Read the full article for more details, but here is a summary:

Best Herb for Acute Anxiety Relief - Kava (Piper methysticum)

→ Farmacopia tinctures: In The Moment & Feeling Easy

Best Herb for Insomnia - Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata)

→ Farmacopia tincture: Sleep Now

Best Herb for Chronic Stress - Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera)

Sweet Sleep
Love sweet sleep

I sleep better ever since I have been taking sweet sleep. I combine it with cherry bomb. Great products from Farmacopia.

very refreshing

The name sounded good and I really love it. It smells wonderful and feels very good on my face. I use it in the morning after washing my face and let it dry before I apply sunscreen.

Best Natural Pain Relief

I have chronic nerve pain and often get an extra impingement that is very difficult to get relief acupuncturist recommended Nerve Balm, so I tried it and it worked!!!! I will never not have it in my arsenal!! I even have prescribed compounded pain cream, but I would much prefer to use Nerve Balm first!! I have even shared it with at least a couple other people!! Will recommend to anyone who has nerve pain!! I am so grateful for this amazing product!!

I enjoy it inmy smoothie!

I started using this product at the beginning of the pandemic. It was suggested by a staff member when I asked about immune building products. I have been very satisfied with this powder which I mix into a smoothie or apple juice.The taste is fine and I feel like I am putting something very nourishing into my body. I highly recommend this product.

Helps with sleep

I've been taking this in the evening before bed for about 6 months and it definitely helps me go to sleep more quickly, and also sleep more soundly through the night.
Digestible and effective.
